French producer Arsonye is back on his Minitel Records imprint with five uplifting, sunny house cuts entitled ‘Panama Lovers’.

Arsonye is a French House music producer from the city of Tours who started producing and performing as a DJ while living in South America in 2014-2015. While living in Uruguay, Arsonye composed and self-released his first EP “Out of the Blue” before moving back to France where he founded Minitel Records with his long-time friend and producer WARNG. The label is united by a passion for the sounds of their childhood consisting in promoting electronic music inspired by the 80s and 90s. Since its creation, the label has released music from international artists including Billy Mays Band, Robert Quester, Red Soda and Stilz.

‘Panama Lovers’ is a reference to the Panama Papers scandal. It is Arsonye’s contribution to restoring the country public perception. As an international trade hub and the host of many corporate subsidiaries, Panama is a place where a lot of foreigners come for business and only stay for a couple of days. In his EP “Panama Lovers”, Arsonye has imagined an impossible romance in Panama, in which two lovers try to catch each other but time is of the essence in this place where many are just passing by…

‘Upon Arrival’ kicks things off with beautiful leads and inspiring synths underneath a luscious bass line and delightful keys before ‘Calling You’ fuses sunshine-soaked atmospheres through irresistible melodic stabs, uplifting piano chords and warming pads that gracefully envelop throughout. ‘Business to Business’ is a low slung house cut with laid back grooves, inviting melodies and punchy acid pulsations whilst revolving synth flutters, breezy tones and restorative vibrations in ‘Laundry Love’ immerse the listener through to the end. ‘Papers’ exquisitely rounds off this gorgeous EP with chugging drums, deep 303 bass notes and oceanic softness that’s a common feature throughout the whole release
